As the days grow shorter and the temperature starts to drop, it's time to start thinking about kids coats. It can be difficult to regulate your child’s temperature in every season, but with the right coat, they will be able to thrive in even the coldest temperatures!
At Töastie, we’ve got a great range of versatile kids outerwear pieces suitable for all-season wear. Made using recycled materials, sustainably sourced down or eco down, we always strive to design our outerwear not just for style, comfort and wearability, but also with sustainability in mind. Whilst some coats are more suited to specific seasons, don’t forget you can layer up lighter pieces for when it’s cold outside. Read on to discover our seasonal guide to kids coats.
Warm Kids Winter Coats
For winter, you'll want to choose a coat that is both warm and waterproof. Our North Star Parka is ideal for heavy-weather wear. Featuring a waterproof soft-touch outer shell made from recycled P.E.T plastic bottles and Sorona® eco faux-down fill (tog rating 4.5) for both warmth and breathability. With a cosy sherpa hood lining and luxury faux-fur detachable trim on the hood, this coat is the ideal cold-weather companion for any child (Ages 3-14 years).
Another great option for keeping kids cosy in Winter is our Wild Luna Puffer - our warmest coat, with a tog rating of 6.3, using recycled down filling. Recycled down is more sustainable and eco-friendly due to repurposing down already in circulation, however it still benefits from the same insulating properties. With a super-soft, sherpa-lined hood and fleece-lined hand warmer pockets, your little ones will feel warm even on the coldest Winter evenings (Ages 3-14 years).
Showerproof Spring Coats For Kids
When the weather starts to warm up in Spring, you'll want to switch to a lighter but still waterproof coat. Our Classic Raincoat is a great choice, with an ultra-soft touch outer shell, made from recycled plastic bottles and waterproof up to 8,000 mm - it will protect them from any heavy Spring showers on the school run. With a thermal lining offering ultimate breathability, the comfort, wearability and versatility of the Töastie Waterproof Raincoat can also put it at the heart of your child's all-season outerwear wardrobe (Ages 6 months - 14 Years).
Lightweight Kids Summer Coats
Often, Summer weather can be a bit unpredictable, so whilst it might be warm outside, you may find you're suddenly in need of an outerwear piece to keep your little ones sheltered from the rain. Our Waterproof Pac-a-Macs are a great solution, waterproof up to 8,000mm, with a super light and ultra-soft touch outer shell made from recycled P.E.T plastic bottles and a silky Airtex lining offering comfort and breathability. This wonderfully versatile jacket packs neatly down into its own contemporary (yet beautifully retro) bumbag for on-the-go convenience (Ages 6 Months - 12 Years).
Versatile Kids Autumn Coats
The weather in Autumn can vary quite dramatically across the season, so it’s good to be prepared with a coat that is versatile enough to be warm, comfortable and waterproof when you need it to be. Our Wild 3-in-1 Raincoat is the ultimate investment for all-season wear. Featuring an ultra-soft touch, waterproof up to 8,000mm, lightweight raincoat, with a removable recycled down bomber jacket, to ensure your kids will be ready for whatever the British weather has in store (Ages 3 - 14 Years).
Other Outerwear Essentials For Kids
Outerwear isn’t just limited to coats and jackets, some of our best selling pieces include puddlesuits, dungarees and pramsuits - perfect for keeping your kids warm and dry, from top to bottom.
For tiny tots (aged 0-4 years), the Toastie Cloud Onesie pramsuit provides all the weather protection they need thanks to a sustainable eco-down fill (tog rating 2.5). Sorona® sustainable faux-down is derived from natural corn which mimics the qualities found in genuine down, making the snowsuit thermo-regulating, breathable, light and soft. With an easy grip double zip feature, ultra cosy sherpa lined hood and cute animal ears this snowsuit will become your baby’s best loved cold weather companion.
For outdoor play, wet weather and puddle jumping adventures our Waterproof Puddlesuits are perfect for kids aged 12 months to 6 years. With a fully waterproof (up to 8,000mm) peach-soft exterior made from recycled PET plastic bottles, and a lightweight airtex lining, this is a great piece for all-season wear. (Pair with thermals underneath for winter-wear.)
